UK Court Bans Man With Low IQ From Having Sex

No SexMartin Beckford writes in the Telegraph:

A man with a low IQ has been banned from having sex by a High Court judge who admitted the case raised questions about “civil liberties and personal autonomy”.

The 41 year-old had been in a relationship with a man whom he lived with and told officials “it would make me feel happy” for it to continue. But his local council decided his “vigorous sex drive” was inappropriate and that with an IQ of 48 and a “moderate” learning disability, he did not understand what he was doing.

A psychiatrist involved in the case even tried to prevent the man being given sex education, on the grounds that it would leave him “confused”. Mr Justice Mostyn said the case was “legally, intellectually and morally” complex as sex is “one of the most basic human functions” and the court must “tread especially carefully” when the state tries to curtail it.

    I’d love to see how they enforce this… “laws” are enforced by a group of people, no wiser or better than you, ganging up and enforcing their views.

    Fuck their laws. Their laws mean as much to me as what the new testament says: nothing.

    An’ it harm none, do what ye will. No other laws need to exist.

    Yet the courts in the States feel no compulsion at all to let mental monstrosities like Sarah Palin run for elective office.

    Hmph. There’s your priorities for you. Spend all your time enforcing laws against people without the resources to contest them rather than enforcing laws that would actually make a difference to the public.

    Google Carrie Buck, you dumb pricks — it’s progressives, leftists, ‘liberals’ who are behind these laws.
